Horror film 'Into the mirror': invitation to the 23rd Fajr International Film Festival

2005/01/25 Source

As director Kim Seong-ho's horror film 'Into The Mirror' is invited to the 23rd Fajr International Film Festival to be opened on Jan. 31 in Teheran, Iran, interest in Korean films in the Middel East countries is expected.

Movie 'Into The Mirror' is screened in the 'Spiritual Cinema', a competition part to which a total of 13 films are invited.

Into The Mirror, supported by the New Directors in Focus program at the Pusan Film Festival in its early development stage, is an intriguing debut film by Kim Seong-ho, a former architect whose deft manipulation of the spatial and optic dimensions of the film results in its unique and memorable look and atmosphere, overlaid with a layer of modernist austerity.

Yoo Ji-tae (Old Boy, Attack the Gas Station!) plays U Young-min, a cop-turned-security chief at a department store, investigating a series of inexplicable suicides.

Young-min, unable to look into a mirror since he had mistakenly caused his partner's death, becomes convinced that the victims were somehow dispatched by a presence inside the mirror.

In the course of investigation, he encounters the mentally disturbed Ji-hyeon (Kim Hye-na, Flower Island), who is equally obsessed with the mirror. Meanwhile, Young-min's skeptical former colleague Hyeon-su (Kim Myung-min from Sorum) begins to regard him as the prime suspect....

Another Korean movie 'The Sword in the Moon' is invited to the Competition of Asian Cinema and Tube is screened in the 'Special Screening' part at the 23rd Fajr International Film Festival.
